COVID-19 UPDATE (11/21/2020)
In light of the many conversations everyone is having around rising COVID rates in Minnesota, we wanted to update you on what Open Arms is doing. As you may know, Open Arms of Minnesota is considered an essential service, providing medically tailored meals for individuals and their families experiencing life-threatening illnesses. At this time, we will continue to strictly adhere to local, state and CDC guidelines, ensuring we are not only continuing critical services to our clients but just as importantly – keeping our staff and volunteers safe and healthy. Our operations and services to clients are dependent on the generosity and involvement of our volunteers, and we will work to ensure the safety of everyone who comes into our building or engages with our services.

Introducing the COVID-19 Response Program
At Open Arms of Minnesota, there’s always room for one more at the table! Since our humble beginnings in 1986 delivering meals in response to the AIDS epidemic, we have sought to expand our services to as many critically-ill neighbors as possible. Today, amid another public health crisis, we are proud to announce that our medically tailored meals will be reaching even more neighbors in need: those in Ramsey County impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
